    Passage 1

    Long, long ago there was a very foolish thief. Do you know what he did one day? When he wanted to steal the bell on his neighbour's door, he walked up to the door, took hold of the bell and pulled hard. The bell made a very loud noise. The thief was afraid and went home. 


        Then he sat down to think, "I must do something about the noise," he said. He thought and thought. At last he had an idea. "Ah, I'll put some cotton in my ears. Then I won't be able to hear the noise." The next day he went to the door of his neighbour, and took hold of the bell. This time he pulled even harder. The bell rang loudly, but the thief did not hear anything. With another hard pull he got the bell out. Just then the neighbour came running out. 然后他坐下來想,我必須做一些關于噪音事情,他說。他想了又想。最后他想出了一個主意。啊,我會把一些棉花在我的耳朵。我不能聽到的噪音。第二天他去他鄰居的門,抓住鈴。這一次他將更加力。鈴聲響了起來,但小偷什么也沒有聽到。再次用力一拉,他得到了。就在這時,鄰居跑過來。

    So Hercules went away. He walked the whole day and the next day and the next. He walked for months before he saw mountains far in the distance one fine morning. One of the mountains was in the shape of a man, with long, long legs and arms and huge shoulders and a huge head. He was holding up the sky. Hercules knew it was Atlas, the Mountain God. So he asked him for help.

    Hercules climbed the mountain and shouldered the sky. Soon the sky grew very heavy. When finally Atlas came back with three golden apples, he said, "Well, you are going to carry the mountain for ever. I'm going to see the king with the apples." Hercules knew that he couldn't fight him because of the sky on his back, So he shouted: 克斯上山并承擔了天空。不久天空變的很重。當最終阿特拉斯帶了三個金蘋果回來,他說,好吧,你要永遠背著山。我帶蘋果要去見國王。克斯知道他不能打他,因為天空在他的背上,于是他喊道:

    Passage 6

    Get up, the water is coming.” Yan Xinzhi, director of the neighborhood committee of Chaoyang Street, Taiyuan, capital of Shanxi Province, would knock at the door of every household at midnight to have people collect water; otherwise, the tap water would soon run dry when everyone in the city got up and joined the “water rush” in the morning. Yan, an elderly lady about 60, had served as committee director for more than 20 years; her major work was to rouse her neighbors from their sleep to get water. As time went by, residents could not go to sleep before one o’clock in the morning. “起床,水來了。新芝,山西省太原朝陽街居委會主任委員會主任,會在半夜敲每個家庭人收集水;否則,自來水將很快枯竭,城市的每個人都在早上起身加入。 ,一個約60老年婦女,曾擔任委員會主任超過20年;主要工作是要從他們的睡眠喚醒她的鄰居得到水。隨著時間的推移,居民可以在早上一點前不睡覺。

    Chaoyang Street was not the only street in Taiyuan that lacked water, and Taiyuan was not the only city in China with water in short supply. 朝陽街不是唯一在太原缺水的街道,太原不是中國唯一供水緊缺的城市。

The annual deficit of water has reached 6 billion cubic meters, leading to a loss of RMB 200 billion (approximately US $24 billion) in industrial output. 茂生,水資源部長,告訴我們,今天的中國, 300多個城市缺水;在108個城市,缺水的情況已很嚴峻。年度赤字達到00立方米的水,導致損失0000人民幣(約000美元)的工業產值。

    Passage 7

    People who cannot tell all colors apart are said to be color blind. Most color-blind people can see yellow and blues, but confuse reds with greens. It is very rare for a person to be blind to all colors, but they may see everything in shades of black, white, and gray.不能辨別所有的顏色的人被稱為色盲。大多數色盲的人可以看到黃色和藍色,但混淆了紅軍與綠。所有顏色都色盲的人是非常罕見的,但他們在黑色,白色,灰色的陰影下可以看到一切。

    It is interesting to note that many color-blind people don’t even realize that they are color-blind. They don’t know that the colors they are seeing and naming are not the actual colors that people with normal vision can see. This can be particularly dangerous when a color-blind person confuses the red and green of a traffic light. 值得注意的是,許多色盲的人甚至不知道他們是色盲。他們不知道,他們所看到的命名顏色的顏色,不是正常的人可以看到的顏色。這是特別危險的時候,當色盲的人混淆了紅色和綠色的交通燈。

    Color blindness is thought to be inherited (遺傳). And although doctors have thought up tests to determine(測定)color blindness, there is no cure to treatment for it. 色盲被認為是遺傳。雖然醫生想到試驗測定色盲,沒有方法來治療它。

    4.    A person who is color-blind is not allowed to drive.

    I wake up early every day, it’s usually about  am, and wait until I hear Tilly, my mum, moving about. Then I make her a cup of tea. At about half past seven she gets up and we have breakfast together. We normally just have toast, but on Sundays we always have bacon and eggs. After breakfast she reads the newspaper, then she sits by the window and waves to the neighbours as they walk by. 我每天早起,通常是大約,等到我聽到了提莉,我的媽媽,移動。我讓她一杯茶。在大約半她和我們一起吃早餐。我們通常只吃烤面包,但是星期天我們總是吃熏肉和雞蛋。早飯后她讀報紙,然后她坐在窗前,當鄰居們走過,她向他們揮揮手。

    She hardly ever goes out but she is very proud of her personal appearance, so she goes to the hairdresser once a month. 她很少出門,她很為她的容貌自豪,所以她去理發師那里,每月一次。

    She doesn’t like being left on her own for very long, so I always arrange for a neighbour to come and sit with her when I go out. Now and again, my friend and neighbour, Joan, comes to spend the day with her, and I can go and have lunch with another friend, May, who lives in town.


    I have a brother, Syd. He comes to stay two or three times a year. He is very good and keeps in touch, but he lives 300 miles away. Once a year, he collects mum and takes her to stay with him in London for a week. She doesn’t really like going because it’s a long journey, but I need the rest.


    Sally, the nurse, comes to see mum regularly. My next-door neighbour, Jack, often calls in.  In the evening we usually watch TV and we sometimes play cards. Mum is fantastic for her age.

    Passage 9

    Benjamin Disraeli, the famous nineteenth century prime minister, said, “London is not a city, it is a nation.” Today this is an understatement; London, with its vast range of different ethnic groups, is a world. 本杰明.迪斯雷利,著名的第十九世紀的總理,說,倫敦不是一個城市,它是一個民族。今天,這是一個輕描淡寫;倫敦,其范圍廣泛的不同的民族,是一個世界。

    Certainly, London is the most culturally diverse city in the world. The city was founded by the Romans and since then new arrivals have constantly added to its character and prosperity.


    Within 10 years 40% of Londoners will be from ethnic minority groups, including the growing number of Londoners of mixed ethnic origin, but most of them will have been born in Britain. Children of Caribbean-Chinese marriages will go to school with children of Russian-Irish couples. None of them will be English, but all of them will be Londoners.


    Most of Britain's ethnic minority residents live in the capital, speaking over 300 languages. Nearly all of the African population and many of the Caribbean population of Britain live in London (83% and 58% respectively); 39% of the Chinese population of Britain and 36% of the Asian population of Britain live in London. The largest migrant community is from the Irish Republic with 256,000 people, % of the total population of London.


    There are an estimated 330,000 refugees and asylum seekers living in London, with most recent arrivals coming from Eastern Europe, North Africa and Kurdistan.


      Young people, in particular, are skilled at dealing with a large number of different and hybrid cultures. They themselves often have several different ethnic identities since their parents and grandparents may come from several different backgrounds, and their friends and partners do also. They are “skilled cross-cultural travellers” without leaving their home-town.


    1. London is a nation.倫敦是一個國家。

    A. T                  B. F  

    2. The city of London was founded by the Romans.倫敦的城市是被羅馬人建立的。

    A. T                  B. F  

    3. All African population live in London.所有的非洲人口住在倫敦。

    A. T                  B. F  

    4. 39% of the total population of London are Chinese. 39%的倫敦人口是中國人。

    Passage 12

    About 130 years ago. Thomas Edison of the US invented the light bulb. Edison's bulb has turned night into day ever since. But today, many want to turn the light off. 


    ?? The European Union (歐盟) recently decided that by 2009,people should stop using the Edison-style light bulb. Instead, they should use compact fluorescent lamps


     "CFLs save energy and last longer. They can save money in the long run," said a British official. CFLs use 67 percent (67%) less electricity than the older bulbs. They last up to 10 times longer. Scentists say that if everyone used CFLs, electricity use would be cut by 18 percent. There would also be much smaller amounts of greenhouse gases given off.


    ?? But it's difficult to make people change their lighting habits. First the CFLs are more expensive. They cost eight times the price of the older bulbs. Many people don't like the CFL bulb. They find it too bright. You cannot change the light of a CFL,either.


    ?? CFLs have been around for several years. However. the older lights still make up about two-thirds of total light bulb sales. 緊湊型熒光燈已經好幾年了。不過,老燈仍占大約三分之二的總光燈泡銷售。

    Passage 14

    Poll reveals TV news too negative

    A recent Time CNN poll in the USA has discovered that 75% of people agreed that the

    news media is "sensationalist", 63%found it "too negative" and 73%said they are "skeptical

    about the accuracy" of the news they are receiving.


    Local news programmes in the USA are so dominated by stories of violence and crime

    that other topics like government, education and the environment are left with little airtime.

    Network broadcaster John Walters claimed, "This lack of information has resulted in

    negative feelings towards the media."


    Crime reports, which often serve as lead stories, make up an average of 30. 2% of news

    time on local TV news programmes in the USA. Media researcher Bob Smith reported,

    "53% of crime reports are about murder, but it is one of the least frequently committed

    crimes. ' Another media study revealed that 42%of local TV news broadcasts are stories

    about crime, disaster and war.


    One possible reason for this is that local television news is ratings driven. Some market

    research suggests that viewers like to see stories of crime and violence, which increases the

    ratings of newscasts. Higher ratings mean higher advertising revenues. Mike Adams, a television executive, explained, "The increase in crime reports is because, on average, almost half the money a local station makes comes from news." 


    Many experts believe a steady diet of violence-oriented news broadcasts has serious

    effects. A spokesman for the National Television Violence Committee stated, "There are

    three main risks associated with viewing media violence. People learn aggressive behaviors.

    They become desensitized to real-world violence. These lead to an increased fear of being a

    victim of violence, resulting in mistrust of others."


    1. The majority of people polled think that the news media is accurate.


    A. T                  B. F

    2. There is not enough time to talk about a wider range of subjects on the news.


    A. T                  B. F

    3. 42%of all crimes committed are murders.


    A. T                  B. F

    4. Advertising companies invest in TV programmes with high ratings.


    A. T                  B. F

    5. TV stations make too much money from news.


    A. T                  B. F

    of cakes so it wouldn't want to run. Then they took it for a long walk so it was tired. They

    Passage 2

    A foreigners first impression of the . is likely to be that everyone is in a rush-often under pressure. City people appear always to be hurrying to get where they are going restlessly, seeking attention in a store, and elbowing others as they try to complete their errands (任務). Racing through daytime meals is part of the pace of life in this country.


    Working time is considered precious. Others in public eating places are waiting for you to finish so that they too can be served and get back to work within the time allowed. Each person hurries to make room for the next person. If you dont, waiters will hurry you.


    You also find drivers will be abrupt and that people will push past you. You will miss smiles, brief conversations, and small courtesies with strangers. Dont take it personally. This is because people value time highly, and they resent someone else wasting it beyond a certain courtesy point.


          The view of time affects the importance we attach to patience. In the American system of values, patience is not a high priority. Many of us have what might be called a short fuse. We begin to move restlessly about if we feel time is slipping away without some returnbe this in terms of pleasure, work value, or rest. Those coming from lands where time is looked upon differently may find this matter of pace to be one of their most difficult adjustments in both business and daily life.


    Many newcomers to the States will miss the opening courtesy of a business call, for example, they will miss the ritual socializing that goes with a welcoming cup of tea or coffee they may be traditional in their own country. They may miss leisurely business chats in a café or coffeehouse. Normally, Americans do not assess their visitors in such relaxed surroundings over prolonged small talks. We seek out evidence of past performance rather than evaluate a business colleague through social courtesies. Since we generally assess and probe professionally rather than socially, we start talking business very quickly. (348 words)

    Passage 4

    Britain and France are separated by the English Channel, a body of water that can be crossed in as few as 20 minutes. But the cultures of the two countries sometimes seem to be miles apart.


    Last Thursday Britain and France celebrated the 100th anniversary(周年紀念)of the signing of a friendship agreement called the Entente Cordiality. The agreement marked a new beginning for the countries following centuries of wars and love-hate partnership.


    But their relationship has been ups and downs over the past century. Just last year, there were fierce disagreements over the Iraq war-which British Prime Minister Tony Blair supported despite French President Jacques Chirac speaking out against it. This discomfort is expressed in Blair and Chirac’s body language at international meetings. While the French leader often greets German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder with a hug(擁抱), Blair just receives a handshake. However, some political experts say the war in Iraq could in fact have helped ties.


    The history of divisions may well be because of the very different ways in which the two sides see the world. But this doesnt stop 12 million Britons taking holidays in France each year. However, only 3 million French come in the opposite direction. Surveys(調查)show that most French people feel closer to the Germans than they do to the British. And the research carried out in Britain has found that only a third of the population believes the French can be trusted. Perhaps this bad feeling comes because the British dislike Frances close relationship with Germany, or because the French are not happy with Britains close links with the US.


    Whatever the answer is, as both sides celebrate 100 years of doubtful friendship, they are at least able to make jokes about each other. Heres one: What’s the best thing about Britains relationship with France? The English Channel. (320 words)


    11. For centuries, the relationship between Britain and France is ____________.


    A. friendly   B. impolite   C. brotherly   D. a mixture of love and hate

    12. The war in Iraq does ____________ to the relationship between France and Britain.


    A. good         B. harm  

    C. neither good nor harm     D. both good and harm

    13. The British are not so friendly to ____________ and the French are not so friendly to ____________.


    A. Germany; America      B. America; Germany

    C. Germany; Germany      D. America; America

    14. ____________ are more interested in having holidays in ____________.    英國人更喜歡到法國度假。

    A. American people…Britain     B. British people  Germany

    C. French people  Britain     D. British people  France

    15. What does the last sentence mean? 文章的最后一句的意思是什么?

    A. As long as the English Channel exists, no further disagreement will form between France and Britain.

    B. The English Channel can prevent anything unfriendly happening in both France and Britain.

    C. France and Britain are near neighbors, and this will help balance the relationship between them.


    D. The English Channel is the largest enemy between France and Britain.

    Passage 6

    Paper is one of the most important products ever invented by man. Wide spread use of written language would not have been possible without some cheap and practical material to write on. The invention of paper meant that more people could be educated because more books could be printed and distributed. Together with the printing press, paper provided an extremely important way to communicate knowledge.


    How much paper do you use every year? Probably you cannot answer that question quickly. In 1990 the worlds use of paper was about one kilogram for each person a year. Now some countries use as much as 50 kilograms of paper for each person a year. Countries like the United States, England and Sweden use more paper than other countries.


    Paper, like many other things that we use today, was first made in China. In Egypt and the West, paper was not very commonly used before the year 1400. The Egyptians wrote on a kind of material made of a water plant. Europeans used parchment for many hundreds of year. Parchment was very strong; it was made from the skin of certain young animals. We have learnt of the most important facts of European history from records that were kept on parchment. (208words)

    Passage 8

    It has been reported that in colleges across the United States, the daytime serial drama known as the soap opera has suddenly become in. Between the hours of 11 a. m. and 4:30 p. m., college television lounges are filled with soap opera fans who cant wait to see the next episode in the lives of their favorite characters.


    Actually, soaps are more than a college favorite; theyre a youth favorite. When school is out, high-school students are in front of their TV sets. One young working woman admitted that she turned down a higher paying job rather than give up watching her favorite serials. During the 1960s, it was uncommon for young people to watch soap operas. The mood of the sixties was very different from now. It was a time of seriousness, and talk was about social issues of great importance.


    Now, seriousness has been replaced by fun. Young people want to be happy. It may seem strange that they should turn to soap opera, which is known for showing trouble in peoples lives. But soap opera is enjoyment. Young people can identify with the soap opera character, who, like the college-age viewer, is looking for happy love, and probably not finding it. And soap opera gives young people a chance to feel close to people without having to bear any responsibility for their problems.


    11. What is soap opera? 什么是肥皂?

    A. Plays based on science fiction stories.  

    B. Plays based on non-fiction stories.

    C. The daytime serial dramas on TV.  白天的電視系列劇。

    D. Popular documentary films on TV.

    12. What can be the best title of the passage? 這篇文章的最佳題目是什么?

      A. College student viewers.    B. Favorite TV serials.

      C. Soap opera fans.  肥皂劇迷  D. College-age viewers.

    13. Which is NOT the reason why the soap opera has suddenly become in among American young people?


      A. Because the viewers want to be happy and to enjoy themselves.

      B. Because the soap opera makes young people feel close to their people.

      C. Because the viewers can find themselves in the soap opera characters.

    D. Because the young people have to bear the responsibilities for their troubles.


    14. What can we learn from the passage? 這篇文章讓我們知道了什么?

      A. College students like soap operas more than any other social groups.

      B. Young people of sixties like soap operas more than people today.

    C. Young viewers have turned themselves from the seriousness of sixties to enjoyment now.


      D. The young as a whole are trying to look for happy love but in vain.

    15. What message does the author want to convey to us? 作者想向我們表達什么信息?

      A. The peoples favorites to drama works have been changed for a long time.

    Passage 9

    Many people who work in London prefer to live outside it, and to go in to their offices or schools every day by train, car or bus, even though this means they have to get up early in the morning and reach home late in the evening.


    One advantage of living outside London is that houses are cheaper. Even a small flat in London without a garden costs quite a lot to rent. With the same money, one can get a little house in the country with a garden of one’s own.


    Then, in the country one can really get away from the noise and hurry of busy working lives. Even though one has to get up earlier and spend more time in trains or buses, one can sleep better at night and during weekends and on summer evenings, one can enjoy the fresh, clean air of the country. If one likes gardens, one can spend ones free time digging, planting, watering and doing the hundred and one other jobs which are needed in a garden. Then, when the flowers and vegetables come up, one has got the reward together with those who have shared the secret of Nature.


    Some people, however, take no interest in country things: for them, happiness lies in the town, with its cinemas and theatres, beautiful shops and busy streets, dance-halls and restaurants. Such people would feel that their life was not worth living if they had to live it outside London. An occasional walk in one of the parks and a fortnights (two weeks) visit to the sea every summer is all the country they want: the rest they are quite prepared to leave to those who are glad to get away from London every night.


    6. Which of the following statements is NOT true? 下列哪個陳述是不對的?

      A. People who love Nature prefer to live outside the city.

    B. All the people who work in London prefer to live in the country. 


      C. Some people enjoying city life prefer to work and live inside London.

      D. Many nature lovers, though working in London, prefer to live outside the city.

    7. With the same money needed for _______, one can buy a little house with a garden in the country.


      A. getting a small flat with a garden   B. having a small flat with a garden

    C. renting a small flat without a garden 租一套沒有花園的小公寓

    D. buying a small flat without a garden

    8. When the garden is in blossom, the one _______ has been rewarded.


      A. living in the country    B. having spent time working in the garden花時間在花園里工作

      C. having a garden of his own   D. having been digging, planting and watering

    9. People who think happiness lies in the city life would feel that _______ if they had to live outside London.

      C. they didnt deserve a happy life     D. they were not worthy of their happy life

    10. The underlined phrase get away from in the 3rd paragraph refers to _______.

        在第3段中,劃線的詞組get away from指_______。

      A. deal with        B. do away with

      C. escape from 逃脫某個地方   D. prevent from

    Passage 10

    By definition, heroes and heroines are men and women distinguished by uncommon courage, achievements, and self-sacrifice made most for the benefits of others-they are people against whom we measure others. They are men and women recognized for shaping our nations consciousness and development as well as the lives of those who admire them. Yet, some people say that ours is an age where true heroes and heroines are hard to come by, where the very idea of heroism is something beyond us  an artifact of the past. Some maintain, that because the Cold War is over and because America is at peace, our age is essentially an unheroic one. Furthermore, the overall crime rate is down, poverty has been eased by a strong and growing economy, and advances continue to be made in medical science.


    Cultural icons are hard to define, but we know them when we see them. They are people who manage to go beyond celebrity(明星), who are legendary, who somehow manage to become mythic. But what makes some figures icons and others mere celebrities? Thats hard to answer. In part, their lives have the quality of a story to tell. For instance, the beautiful young Diana Spencer who at 19 married a prince, renounced marriage and the throne, and died at the moment she found true love. Good looks certainly help. So does a special indefinable charm, with the help of the media. But nothing confirms an icon more than a tragic death  such as Martin Luther King, Jr., John F. Kennedy, and Princess Diana.


    11. The passage mainly deals with _______.這段主要講述_______

      A. life and death       B. heroes and heroines

      A. Good looks.       B. Tragic and early death. 悲劇和英年早逝

      C. Personal attraction.      D. The quality of ones story.

    Passage 11

    Places to stay in Britain are as varied as the places you visit. Whatever your budget is the choice from basic barn to small hotel, from tiny cottage to grand castle is all part of fun.


    Hostels 旅社

    Cheap, good-value hostels are aimed at all types of like-minded travelers, who prefer value over luxury and you dont have to be young or single to use them. Britains independent hostels and backpackers hostels also offer a great welcome. Facilities and prices vary, especially in rural areas, where some hostels are a little more than a bunkhouse(臨時住房)while others are remarkably comfortable almost like bargain hotels.


    Youth Hotels  青年旅館

    Founded many years ago to help all, especially young people of limited means, to a greater knowledge, love and care of the countryside, the Youth Hotels Association is still going strong in the 21st century. The network of 230 hotels is a perfect gateway for exploring Britains towns and countryside.


    B&Bs  床位和早餐

    The B&Bs (bed and breakfasts) is a great British institution. In essence you get a room in somebodys house, and small B&Bs may only have one guest room, so youll really feel like part of the family. Larger B&Bs may have four or five rooms and more facilities, but just as warm as a welcome.

    床位與早餐是英國的偉大創舉。實際上就是某家的住戶為你提供一個房間,小的B& Bs只有一間客房,所以你會覺得自己是這戶人家的一份子。大一些的B& Bs可能有4、5個房間和更多是設施,但一樣的熱情款待。

    In country areas your B&Bs might be in a village or an isolated farm surrounded by fields. Prices reflect facilities: and usually run from around 12 to  20 per person. City B&Bs charge about 25 to  30 per person, although theyre often cheaper as you go further out to the suburbs.

    在農村,B & B可能在一個村莊或者四周都是田地的獨立的農場里。價格反映了房間的設施:通常每人在12到20英鎊左右。城市的B & Bs價格在每人25到30英鎊左右,盡管越到郊區價格越便宜。

    Pubs & Inns   酒吧和客棧

    As well as selling drinks and meals, Britains pubs and inns sometimes offer B&Bs, particularly in country areas. Staying a night or two can be great fun and puts you at the heart of local community.


    Rates range from around 15 to  25 per person. Pubs are more likely to have single rooms.

    Passage 12

    What makes a person a scientist? Does he have ways or tools of learning that are different from those of others? The answer is no. It is not the tools a scientist uses but how he uses these tools that make him a scientist. You will probably agree that knowing how to use a power is important to a carpenter. You will probably agree, too, that knowing how to investigate, how to discover information, is important to everyone. The scientist, however, goes one step further, he must be sure that he has a reasonable answer to his questions and that his answer can be confirmed by other persons. He also works to fit the answer he gets to many questions into a large set of ideas about how the world works.


    The scientists knowledge must be exact. There is no room for half right or right just half the time. He must be as nearly right as the conditions permit. What works under one set of conditions at one time must work under the same conditions at other times. If the conditions are different, any changes the scientist observes in a demonstration must be explained by the changes in the conditions. This is one reason that investigations are important in science. Albert Einstein, who developed the theory of relativity, arrived at this theory through mathematics. The accuracy of this mathematics was later tested through investigations, Einsteins ideas were shown to be correct. A scientist uses many tools for measurements. Then the measurements are used to make mathematical calculations that may test his investigations.

    Passage 13

    In the United States, it is not customary to telephone someone very early in the morning. If you telephone him early in the day, while he is shaving or having breakfast, the time of the call shows that the matter is very important and requires immediate attention. The same meaning is attached to telephone calls made after 11:00 . If someone receives a call during sleeping hours, he assumes its a matter of life or death. The time chosen for the call communicates its importance. In social life, time plays a very important part. In the  guests tend to feel they are not highly regarded if the invitation to a dinner party is extended only three or four days before the party date. But it is not true in all countries. In other areas of the world, it may be considered foolish to make an appointment too far in advance because plans which are made for a date more than a week away tend to be forgotten. The meaning of time differs in different parts of the world. Thus, misunderstandings arise between people from different cultures that treat time differently. Promptness is valued highly in American life, for example. If people are not prompt, they may be regarded as impolite or not fully responsible. In the . no one would think of keeping a business associate waiting for an hour, it would be too impolite.

    Passage 14

    There are three kinds of goals: short-term, medium-range and long-term goals.


    Short-term goals are those that usually deal with current activities, which we can apply on a daily basis. Such goals can be achieved in a week or less, or two weeks, or possibly, months. It should be remembered that just as a building is no stronger than its foundation, long-term goals cannot amount to very much without the achievement of solid short-term goals. Upon completing our short-term goals, we should date the occasion and then add new short-term goals that will build on those that have been completed.


    The intermediate goals build on the foundation of the short-term goals. They might deal with just one term of school or the entire school year, or they could even extend for several years. Any time you move a step at a time, you should never allow yourself to become discouraged or overwhelmed. As you complete each step, you will enforce the belief in your ability to grow and succeed. And as your list of completion dates grow, your motivation and desire will increase.


    Long-term goals may be related to our dreams of the future. They might cover five years or more. Life is not a static thing. We should never allow a long-term goal to limit us or our course of action.(221 words)


    11. Our long-term goals mean a lot ____________.


    A. If we cannot reach solid short-term goals  B. If we complete the short-term goals

    C. If we have dreams of the future    D. If we put forward some plans

    13. When we complete each step of our goals, ____________.每完成一個目標,將會增加我們成功的信心。

    A. we will win final success     B. we are overwhelmed

    C. we should build up confidence of success  D. we should have strong desire for setting new goals

    14. What is the main idea of this passage? ____________   這篇短文的中心思想是什么?

    A Life is a dynamic thing.          B. we should set up long-term goals

    C. Different kinds of goals in life. 目標的不同種類。 D. The limitation of long-term goals.

    15. Which of the following statements is wrong according to the passage? ____________


    A. The long-term goals cannot amount to very much without the achievement of solid short-term goals

    B. The intermediate goals build on the foundation of the short-term goals.

    D. We should often add new short-term goals to those which have been completed.

    Passage 15

    How men first learnt to invent words is unknown; in other words, the origin of language is a mystery. All we really know is that men, unlike animals, somehow invented certain sounds to express thought and feelings, actions and things, so that they could communicate with each other; and that later they agreed upon certain signs, called letters, which could be combined to present those sounds, and which could be written down. Those sounds, whether spoken or written in letters, we call words.


    The power of words, then, lies in their associations-the thing they bring up before our minds. Words become filled with meaning for us by experience; and the longer we live, the more certain words recall to us the glad and sad events of our past; and the more we read and learn, the more the number of words that mean something increases.


    Great writers are those who not only have great thoughts but also express these thoughts in words which appeal powerfully to our minds and emotions. This charming and telling use of words is what we call literary style. Above all, the real poet is a master of words. He can convey his meaning in words which sing like music and which by their position and association can move men to tears. We should therefore learn to choose our words carefully and use them accurately, or they will make our speech silly and vulgar.


    6. The origin of language is _______.  語言的起源是:

      A. a legend handed down from the past  B. a matter that is hidden or secret

      C. a question difficult to answer    D. a problem not yet solved一個還未解決的問題

    7. What is true about words?      關于詞匯哪一項是對的?

      A. They are used to express feelings only.  B. They can not be written down.

      C. They are simply sounds.  他們是簡單的聲音 D. They are mysterious.

    8. The real power of words lies in their _______.  文字的真正力量在于其____

      A. properties       B. characteristics  

    C. peculiarity       D. representative function  代表功能  

    9. By “association”, the author means _______.  作者用“聯系性”這個詞指

      A. a special quality      B. a joining of ideas in the mind頭腦中思想的聯接

      C. an appearance which is puzzling   D. a strange feature

    10. Which of the following statements about the real poet is NOT true?


    A. He is no more than a master of words.  他只不過是一個文字的掌握者。

    B. He can convey his ideas in words which sing like music.

      C. He can move men to tears.    D. His style is always charming.

    Passage 16

    Shyness is the cause of much unhappiness for a great many people. Shy people are anxious and self-conscious; that is, they are excessively concerned with their own appearance and actions. Worrisome thoughts are constantly occurring in their minds: what kind of impression am I making? Do they like me? Do I sound stupid? Am I wearing unattractive clothes?


    It is obvious that such uncomfortable feelings must negatively affect people. A persons conception of himself or herself is reflected in the way he or she behaves, and the way a person behaves affects other peoples reactions. In general, the way people think about themselves has a profound effect on all areas of their lives.


    Shy people, having low self-esteem, are likely to be passive and easily influenced by others. They need reassurance that they are doing the right thing. Shy people are very sensitive to criticism; they feel it confirms their feelings of inferiority. They also find it difficult to be pleased by compliment with a statement like this one, Youre just saying that to make me feel good. I know its not true. It is clear that while self-awareness is a healthy quality, overdoing it is harmful.


    Can shyness be completely eliminated, or at least reduced? Fortunately, people can overcome shyness with determined and patient efforts in building self-confidence. Since shyness goes hand in hand with a lack of self-esteems, it is important for people to accept their weakness as well as their strengths.


    Each one of us is a unique, worthwhile individual, interested in our own personal ways. The better we understand ourselves, the easier it becomes to live up to our full potential. Lets not allow shyness to block our chances for a rich and fulfilling life.


    11. What does the author try to prove by citing what kind of impression am I making?


      A. Shy people benefit from their caring about their appearance.

    B. Peoples shyness made them care too much about their appearance and actions.


      C. Its natural that shy people dont believe others compliments.

      D. Shy people think they are different from others.

    12. According to the writer, self-awareness is _______.根據作者的觀點,自知之明是一件_______

      A. a good quality  好事    B. the cause of unhappiness

      C. harmful to people      D. a weak point of shy people

    13. When being praised, shy people feel that it is _______.當被贊揚的時候,羞怯的人感到這是_______

      A. good    B. unreal 不真實的 C. very reasonable  D. harmful

    14. Which of the following statements is true according to the passage? 


      A. Shyness helps us to develop our potential.

    B. Shyness enables us to understand ourselves better.

      C. Shyness can block our chances for a rich life. 羞怯能夠阻礙我們實現富裕人生的機會。

    D. Shyness has nothing to do with lack of self-esteem.

    15. It can be inferred from the passage that shy people _______.從文章中可以推斷出羞怯的人_______

    A. should find more of their weakness  

    B. should understand themselves in the right way應當以正確的方式看待自己

    C. had better ignore their weakness  

    D. can get rid of their shyness while maintaining low self-esteem

    Passage 17

    什么樣的人是租用家具而不是買家具的呢?從事國際商務的人,政府官員,外國學生,航空公司工作人員,剛結婚的年輕夫婦---- 那些由于工作而被迫頻繁來往不同的城市的人。他們可以省去每次搬家具的麻煩和費用。他們到一個新家的時候,只需租新的家具就好了。收入少的年輕人不想買那些他們可能很快就不喜歡的便宜家具。他們寧愿等到有錢時買他們真正喜歡的家具。同時,他們發現他們可以租比他們買得起的質量更好的家具。

    One family, who now have a large, beautiful home of their own, liked their rented furniture so much that they decided to keep renting it instead of buying new things.

    Passage 18  

    A characteristic of American culture that has become almost a tradition is to respect the self-made man the man who has risen to the top through his own efforts, usually beginning by working with his hands. While the leader in business or industry or the college professor occupies a higher social position and commands greater respect in the community than the common laborer or even the skilled factory worker, he may take pains to point out that his father started life in America as a farmer or laborer of some sort.


    This attitude toward manual(體力的)labor is now still seen many aspects of American life. One is invited to dinner at a home that is not only comfortably but even luxuriously(豪華地)furnished and in which there is every evidence of the fact the family has been able to afford foreign travel, expensive hobbies, and college education for the children; yet the hostess probably will cook the dinner herself, will serve it herself and will wash dishes afterward, furthermore the dinner will not consist merely of something quickly and easily assembled from contents of various cans and a cake or a pie bought at the nearby bakery. On the contrary, the hostess usually takes pride in careful preparation of special dishes. A professional may talk about washing the car, digging in his flowerbeds, painting the house. His wife may even help with these things, just as he often helps her with the dishwashing. The son who is away at college may wait on table and wash dishes for his living, or during the summer he may work with a construction gang on a highway in order to pay for his education.


    11. From paragraph 1, we know that in America _______.從第一段我們可以知道在美國_______?

      A. people tend to have a high opinion of the self-made man人們對自我奮斗的人評價很高

      B. people can always rise to the top through their own efforts

      C. college professors win great respect from common workers

      D. people feel painful to mention their fathers as labors

    12. According to the passage, the hostess cooks dinner herself mainly because _______.


    A. servants in American are hard to get  

    B. she takes pride in what she can do herself 她對自己可以做的事情感到自豪

      C. she can hardly afford servants   D. It is easy to prepare a meal with canned food

    13. The expression wait on table in the second paragraph means _______.


      A. work in a furniture shop     B. keep accounts for a bar

      C. wait to lay the table     D. serve customers in a restaurant在餐廳為客人服務
